On the Ubuntu maillists, Alex Ross has announced Nexenta OS – a distribution that tries to combine the best from Debian GNU/Linux and Solaris.
Read the announcement here.
This is to announce Nexenta: the first-ever distribution that combines GNU and
OpenSolaris. As you might know, Sun Microsystems just opened Solaris kernel under
CDDL license, which allows one to build custom Operating Systems. Which we did…
created a new Debian based GNU/Solaris distribution with (the latest bits of)
Solaris kernel & core userland inside.
We'll open Nexenta web developer portal completely for the general public by
mid-November. Today we are launching a Pilot Program. Ubuntu developers and the
entire Debian community – you are welcome to participate in the Pilot!
